To provide services that people want, and to meet the needs of our diverse community, customers must be at the heart of everything we do. Homes for Haringey wants you to get involved in making decisions that affect the management of your home and the services you receive.
Getting involved is your opportunity to help us improve our services and shape them in a way that really meets residents' needs. Have a closer look at all the different ways you can get involved on our Ways to get involved page.
By getting involved you can:
- meet new people and make new friends
- develop your confidence
- increase your skills and knowledge
- improve your CV
- develop skills for the workplace or other voluntary roles
- get a sense of satisfaction from knowing you have helped improve the service residents get
Barriers to getting involved
We understand that sometimes you might want to get involved but can't. This might be for a number of reasons such as:
- You can't attend meetings because you are caring for someone
- You just don't like formal meetings
- You don't have the confidence to set up a residents' group in your area
How we can help
We offer many different ways to get involved so hopefully there is something to suit everyone, not just formal meetings.
If you want to set up a Residents' Association we will give you support and guidance to get started. We can also help you get funding and provide training to improve your skills and confidence.
We may also be able to help arrange transport to meetings or carers costs so that you can attend meetings.
Whatever is holding you back from getting involved, talk to the Resident Involvement team and they may be able to help. We also support individuals and groups through:
- helping with meetings
- assisting with publicity
- help with getting grants.
